CobSOn - Wasted? [WM019]

by CobSOn

Published August 14, 2005


When CobSOn was 6 years old, mom and dad Cobson sent her to the local music school (in the suburbs of Toulouse) where she started to play the piano. The course lasted 11 years.

During the summer 2002, she wrote her first words, "Give the slip" (now "Kidding?"), which became her first song in october when she started playing the guitar.
She met drummer Thierry Bordier in december 2002 who invited her in his home studio. Thierry, interested in her music, proposed her to come as often as she got new songs to record her. Their collaboration lasted 6 months, then he introduced her to one of his childhood friends: Rémi Caussé, arranger, who took her under his wing in november 2003.

Meanwhile, Cobson moved to Montpellier for her studies, which she stopped in january 2005 to devote herself to her music.

Today Cobson keeps singing for Montevideo (since december 2004), a pop'n'roll band in Montpellier, which got contacts abroad, working on her songs at home and looking for people interested in her works.

Notes

When she was 6 years old, mom and dad Cobson sent her to the local music school (in the suburbs of Toulouse) where she started to play the piano. The course lasted 11 years.

During the summer 2002, she wrote her first words, "give the slip" (now "kidding?"), which became her first song in october when she started playing the guitar.
She met Thierry Bordier (drum teacher in the music school where she learned the piano) in december 2002 who invited her in his home studio. There were her first steps. Thierry, interested in her music, proposed her to come as often as she got new songs to record her. Their collaboration lasted 6 months, then he introduced her to one of his childhood friends: Rémi Caussé, arranger, who took her under his wing in november 2003.

Next to this, "le mou'v" (radio) broadcasted "give the slip" in october 2003.

Meanwhile, Cobson moved to Montpellier for her studies (foreign languages), which she stopped in january 2005 to devote herself to her music.

Today Cobson keeps singing for Montevideo (since december 2004), a pop'n'roll band in Montpellier, which got contacts abroad, working on her songs at home and looking for people interested in her works.

Subject: i like it
the ambiance is so present in those songs we can almost imagine the room, i like the songs cause they are twisted, strange and very pop in the same time, swingy is a really good song i found the tic tic tic intro really charming.
the voice is tender and rought the mix of all those things is all i like to hear in music.

Subject: Touching... Interesting...
I like music that is "unpolished". Sometimes it has more of an emotional 'grab' that a heavily produced, 'perfect' sound. This is definitely the case with Cobson's songs here. The minimal style-- voice, piano or guitar & very little else-- creates an intimate mood, as if she's playing on the floor of her living room with only a few listeners. Her voice sounds on the verge of a sob, a growl, or a shriek-- but sexy! Which adds a depth of realism to the songs. I find myself wondering, as I listen again & again, if the stories in these songs are true, if the names (Bobby?) belong to real people...

Subject: rough stuff, but great voice!
Ok,these garage bands sometimes are hit and miss, but this self-produced project has some things going for it: a great voice, simple effects and offbeat rhythms.

Her sometimes dorky-sounding voice has a lot of expressive range, especially in the powerful (though somewhat overdone) song #3 The Man Who Knows (a song, which I just had to listen over again--Wow!). Kidding is a little less anarchic, simpler and uses her voice well.

Her voice sounds a lot like Serena Matthews (one of my alltime fave Internet musical babes), only a little less plaintive, a bit more range.

I felt the other freeform songs were too rambling, and for the most part I didn't find the two vocal vocal tracks on some places added anything. Intro was pleasing(I liked the reverb at the end).

Btw, download picture Number 3 for a laugh!).
